A driver struck a toll booth and drove onto Daytona Beach, injuring a child, before stopping in the water Sunday afternoon.
A video of the incident shows the car stopped where the water reached the sand as disoriented beachgoers surround the vehicle.
Multiple people can be seen pushing the car further back onto the sand. Others can be heard shouting, including one saying, “my baby, my baby.”
The spokesperson said the driver approached the beach from International Speedway, struck a toll booth, then drove onto the beach and into the water.
A child was struck by the vehicle and had to be transported to the hospital, according to the station. The extent of the child’s injuries and any other possible injuries were not immediately known.
Fox News has contacted Volusia County Beach Patrol and Dayton Beach Police Department for updates.
